The 27-year-old is to undergo surgery on an ankle injury next week, which means he is unlikely to play again this year.
"It's been a long stadning injury and we knew something would have to be done," said stand-in Reds manager Phil Thompson.
"It was just a case of how long he would be out for.
"Hopefully, this will clear up th eproblem and he will be okay. It's a blow for us because we need everybody at the moment.
"Nick is a great attacking midfielder who scores goals and gives us a different option."
